West Ham offer VIP package to young crying fan

Watching your team lose 5-0 is always tough to take, but one young West Ham fan took their FA cup loss to Nottingham Forest particularly hard.

This unidentified boy was caught on camera weeping during the match. Now, West Ham is on the hunt to find the child and give him the experience of a lifetime.

In a statement on the club’s website, they have offered him and his family a chance to watch an upcoming match at the Boleyn Ground from the Directors’ Box. Not a bad offer.

The effort to identify the boy and give him a VIP experience has spread, and he’ll likely come forward soon. Let’s just hope he won’t be spotted bawling in the Directors’ Box, too.

Sam Allerdyce all smiles after embarrassing loss

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce hasn’t had a lot to smile about recently, but his spirits seemed remarkably high after a brutal 5-0 FA Cup loss at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Allardyce, whose side also sits second from bottom in the Premier League, might want to wipe that smirk off his face. The 13th highest paid manager in the world (no, seriously) might not have a job if West Ham’s atrocious form keeps up.

Meanwhile, Hammers supporters weren’t quite as content:

Look what you’ve done, Sam.

Nottingham Forest’s Simon Cox took home the honor for Goal of the Year at last night’s Football League Awards, comprising of the Championship and Leagues 1 and 2. Cox’s winning entry was this classy display of controlling the ball and lobbing it past Birmingham City keeper Jack Butland (now Stoke City) back in September. 

Worthy goal if you ask me…for second-tier soccer. ;-)

Nottingham Forest striker Billy Sharp celebrated his goal against Blackpool in a peculiar way — after his power slide, you can see Sharp take a hot dog from a fan in the stands, and take a large bite.

Sharp even tweeted about the unique celebration.

We know two things for certain: Billy Sharp should eat a bigger pre-game meal, and he isn’t a fan of red sauce.
